One of the light in a window switch doesn't come on at night. The switch works fine, but is there a light bulb to change? Or do I have to get a whole new switch to get the light to work again?

The console switches are illuminated by fiber optic cables. It probably has fallen out of the bottom of the switch.

Actually on pre-1993, that's not true. The window switches around the shifter have their own bulbs, and they are soldered in there. When one burns out, you have to replace the whole switch unit.

I had to do this recently, and I bought a used unit off ebay for about $20 shipped.
